The Corridor Plan is the result of a collaborative partnership among the Commonwealth, thirty-one corridor communities, and three regional planning agencies working in conjunction with the Southeastern Massachusetts Commuter Rail Task Force. The process for developing the Corridor Plan included more than 100 civic engagement meetings and events that drew on the knowledge and insights of regional residents, businesses, officials, and community-based organizations. The result is a blueprint for clustering jobs and homes around stations, maximizing the economic benefits of rail investment, minimizing sprawl development, and preserving the farms, fields, and forests of the South Coast.
